I'd second the lads in Amphibian King and Base 2 race - Elverys isn't a specialist enough store to spend that amount of money & then get it wrong.

With regards to the consistency of running - I'd recommend just taking it slowly - if you get to 500m then walking this week, then try 750m next week - theres no shame in walking some of the way in any distance, its how everyone starts believe me. Have you considered trying out a Parkrun? its a free, timed 5k run every saturday for people of all abilities, runners, joggers, families, prams, the works. There are a good few around the greater Dublin area. www.parkrun.ie for details. I'd highly recommend trying one, they're quite social and traditionally have a coffee shop of farmers market at the end where people grab a coffee and swap war stories afterwards - you'd find kids & partners waiting there for people to finish.

but most of all, don't give up!

New Year's Resolution #769

I took the plunge, wrote my first short story and published it today on Medium. It's only a couple of hundred words so if you have a few minutes I'd love some feedback.

For those interested. These were the notes I scribbled down when the idea came to me watching a man on the DART platform:

Platform. Old man. Cigarette. Train Approaching. Glamour. Flicker. Wind. Dejection. Stubbed out. Well Dressed. Marlboro. Descending Time. Another Time.

That train has sailed. Heavy lifts are a young person's game :(
